How is Sound Waves 7 different from the other year levels?
Building on the consistency of Sound Waves Foundation to Year 6, the Year 7 program has been specifically written to help students in their transition to secondary school.
The Year 7 units of work include:
more independent activities for students, including tasks ideal for homework
a focus on Greek and Latin roots, base words, prefixes and suffixes
extra list words at a more complex level
additional grammar concepts with accompanying helpful hints and answers
a greater variety of BLMs to support fast finishers and differentiation
teaching opportunities through dictation assessment activities.
Sound Waves 7 includes the Student Book and Sound Waves Online. We also recommend that Year 7 classrooms have the Extended Student Charts and Extended Teaching Charts (to assist with decoding and encoding complex words).
